The Water's Edge
Ranked #6 of 11 Lake Geneva B&B and Inns
Reviewed 17 August 2009

What a great place. We recently stayed three nights in a suite -- with enough room for 2 adults and 2 children. The beds were comfortable, and the Inn is right on Lake Como, so if you are interested in visiting Lake Geneva, but would like a break from the hustle and bustle of the area, I would recommend staying here. You are only 10 minute drive, max, from Lake Geneva, but you are on a smaller lake, not as much boat traffic. You can sit out on a deck and enjoy the lake side views. Great restaraunt right next door. I agree with the other reviews, breakfasts were great.

They have a large selection of DVDs, and a wonderful communal living area that looks out over the lake.

I would recommend this place to my friends in a heartbeat.

We were looking for a relaxing place to get away for the weekend and the Water's Edge was just that. We loved sitting on the deck overlooking the beautiful lake and hearing the birds singing on one of the first warm days of spring. Marge and Dom were very inviting and we enjoyed talking with them and learning more about them and the history of the area. The Inn was very clean, quiet, comfy and the breakfasts were delicious. We would like to return some day.

This Bed and Breakfast is fabulous. I stayed here with my girlfriend and both of us enjoyed our stay here immensely. We simply had a great time. The host and hostess were very nice and treated us like we were part of their family. We don't have one negative thing to say about this place. We will definitely go back soon.

We first spent a weekend at this beautiful B&B a little over a year ago, and have returned there several times since. The ambience of the inn and the warm welcome of the innkeepers makes it feel like visiting someone's beautiful home. It's a great place to relax and lose the stress of everyday life. Beds are comfortable, TV/VCR in each room, beautiful dock and decks where you can sit out and enjoy the sounds of nature. And oh, what delicious breakfast is served! Enjoyed it so much that we even gave gift certificates to our sons to enjoy an overnight. Looking forward to the next weekend we can get up there!

We spent a wonderful family weekend at Lake Geneva. I travel a great deal and stay at hotels all week so we decided to take a chance on a bed and breakfast. Our family joined us for our stay and we plan to continue this new tradition at Water's Edge yearly. We stayed in a suite at the Water's Edge that had a very comfortable king size bed , sitting area with dvd/vc player, private bath with 2 showers and a huge bathtub. We had a beautiful view looking out over Lake Como. The host and hostess were very welcoming without being intrusive. breakfast on both days was served on a beautiful deck over looking the lake. We had a homemade frittata with all the trimmings one morning and delicious french toast with fresh fruit the next. The sunsets on the deck in the evening were spectacular along with complementary drinks and several tasty treats offered. Our hosts arranged a special Italian family dinner for all of us at the Water's Edge one evening. It was fantastic!! All this for what a regular hotel room at one of the oher resorts would have cost me! I would recommend this place to anyone visiting the Lake Geneva area.

Watersedge is a delightful B&B on lovely Lake Como. The rooms all have a theme and the peaceful setting is great for a weekend getaway and just to get away from the hustle and bustle. Also works for meetings or seminars. The hosts are great and very accommodating. Just a very delightful experience. Highly recommend!
